StumbleUpon

DNS stands for Domain Name System in simple words its a kind of phonebook of internet like we have in our mobile phones as we cant remember all the numbers so we store them by names the same way we cant remember all the IP addresses which is the actual address of any website so we remember the names and DNS is the thing which does the conversion for us,to know more about it you can read the wiki article
